ornaments and passing on projects

angelORNAMENTS_700.jpg

two years ago when my mom moved out of her house, i managed to snatch up these DIY angel ornaments. they are the kind that are printed on fabric yardage and you embellish, cut and sew into ornaments, or in my case, doorhangers. she had started years back (too many years for us to count) by coloring them with colored pencil. when i took them over, i added beads, sequins, gold thread and tons of colored french knots. and just last week, i managed to trim them up and sew and stuff them into finished pieces!

i love being able to pick up projects where she left off. give life to something destined for the land of crafty cast-offs.

i hope your month of december is off to a great start!

love, tiffin
